After announcing them at its recent iPhone-centric event, Apple has officially rolled out its new iCloud+ storage plans. The 6TB and 12TB plans are now available for purchase through the iCloud+ interface, joining the existing lineup of 50GB, 200GB, and 2TB options.
The new 6TB iCloud+ plan is priced at $29.99 per month, targeted at photographers and content creators who require significant storage space. On the other hand, the 12TB plan comes with a monthly cost of $59.99 and is aimed at advanced users looking for even more extensive storage solutions.
In a move designed to optimize utility, Apple has made these new plans shareable among family members. When Family Sharing is enabled, multiple users can capitalize on the enhanced storage capacities, making it a versatile choice for households with diverse storage needs.
Beyond pure storage capacity, iCloud+ comes packed with additional features that heighten the user experience.
These include Private Relay for more secure Safari browsing, Hide My Email for generating temporary, site-specific email addresses, HomeKit Secure Video for storing video footage from HomeKit-compatible cameras, and support for custom email domains that can be utilized with an iCloud email address.
